You’ve heard of Shark Week. What about Garth Week?
It’s coming in November to A&E.
The celebration of all things Garth Brooks will be anchored by the network’s Brooks biography “Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On,” which will premiere over two consecutive nights — 9 EST/PST on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25.
“They turn every page over,” Brooks said of the network. He announced “Garth Brooks: The Road I’m On” Monday evening during his weekly Facebook Live event called “Inside Studio G.”
Brooks said A&E spent about a year-and-a-half making the documentary and that they traveled to his hometown in Oklahoma and spoke with his wife, Trisha Yearwood, and others in the country music community, as well as his three adult daughters and their mother.
“You’re going to love Trisha,” Brooks promised. “The girls are going to blow you away. As a dad, I’m so proud. This is the first time they’ve sat in front of a camera. And my love and thanks to Sandy, the girls’ mom. She was brilliant.”
Brooks debuted the trailer for the documentary at the beginning of “Inside Studio G.” The two-minute clip follows Brooks on the road, as well as taking viewers back in time to when he was trying to break into country music — and later when he had to walk away from his career.
“Imagine you’re going to get divorced,” Brooks said in the documentary. “You’re going to lose your mom … try swallowing those at once. I had to say goodbye to music for a while … for a long while. If you want to know who Garth Brooks is, ‘Friends in Low Places’ is Garth Brooks.”
In addition to the documentary, A&E’s Garth Week will also include extensive on-air and digital content with Brooks, a special airing of Brooks’ Yankee Stadium concert to premiere 9 EST/PST Nov. 26 and more.
